The La Trobe University Student Union (LTSU) is a representative body for La Trobe University students at the Bundoora campus.

Provide an Advocacy service

La Trobe's Advocacy team offers support to students who are experiencing difficulty related to an academic, administrative or welfare issue. The Student Advocacy service operates independently of the University which means that Advocates can assist students without bias or influence from the University. The service is confidential, professional and free.
